Zvelebil, M. and Lillie, M.C. and Montgomery, J. and Lukes, A. and Pettitt, P. and Richards, M.P. (2012) 'The emergence of the LBK : migration, memory and meaning at the transition to agriculture.', in Population dynamics in pre- and early history : new approaches by using stable isotopes and genetics.

This paper represents one element of a collaborative research project, funded by the AHRC, which focussed on a multidisciplinary study of the Earlier Neolithic cemetery of Vedrovice, Moravia, Czech Republic. One of the key aims of this project was the generation of new knowledge in relation to the emergence of the Linear Pottery, or Linearbandkeramik (LBK) culture in Europe. The current paper focuses on the evidence for the shift from hunting and gathering to farming from the perspective of individual life histories and the transmission of knowledge through migration and cultural exchanges.
